Langtang Gosaikunda Trek

Snowy peaks, majestic glaciers, lakes, exotic wildlife and cultural uniqueness, Langtang region stands out among many tourist places of Nepal. The region gets its name from a Tibetan word, Langtang, where Lang means Yak and Tang means to follow. It is believed that a Sherpa once followed a lost Yak along the route which is now used by trekkers to get in to Langtang valley. Situated to the north of Kathmandu, the mountain ranges of the regions are the closet mountain range with respect to Kathmandu. Majority of Langtang region falls under the Langtang national park. Langtang trek offers up-close mountains in shortest time possible. Though the trek doesn’t offer view of mountains higher than 8000 meters in elevation, the scenery of Langtang is aesthetic. Langtang region provides a decent and averagely strenuous trekking experience.

After breakfast, we will start our journey to Kyangjin Gompa, a principal monastery of the region.

Today will be a short walk but it is important to not reach Gosaikunda today because the steady gain in altitude will help us acclimatize better to the high altitude.

Today we get to enjoy fantastic panoramic views of the Himalayas including the Annapurnas, Hiunchuli, Manaslu, Ganesh and Langtang. We follow a ridge for the most part of the day and catch a glimpse of the first of the holy lakes. The third lake, Gosaikunda (4380m), is of particular religious and cultural significance for the Nepalese and is one of Nepal’s most sought after pilgrimage sites. The lake is surrounded by mountains on almost all sides and has a great ensemble of nine other lakes to accompany it. Every year during Janai Purnima in August, hundreds of Hindu pilgrims visit the lake for a holy bath. The large rock at the center of the lake is said to be the remains of a Shiva shrine.
